    I'm going to a meeting shortly and need an app that would allow me to quickly speech to text notes for multiple discussions. It would be something akin to opening a word doc for each discussion and typing it down. Is there anything like that for the Incredible/Android? Does Documents to Go support speech to text on Incredible?

    How do you start the default text to speech while in a program?

    When your keyboard comes up, there should be a little microphone next to the space bar. Press that.

    Thanks. Looks like I can't use that with Swype active. Have to change to default keyboard and use it from there.

    I use AK Notepad. It works well with speech to text and is free at appbrain. I don't take notes at meetings but I love to jot down grocery lists and to do lists.

    Download and use another keyboard.

    For the record, Swype now has a mic button on its keyboard.

    There's only few notepad apps I found that specifically cater to speech-to-text functionality. There's Voice Notepad, which costs about a dollar, and I was using it for a while until I found ListNote. VoiceNote has kind of a cute design and its free, but it doesn't have a search function or encryption option. ListNote is also free and its my go-to notepad because the speech button is right on the front page of the app, and its easy to just press one button while I'm driving to add a note.
